FotoFacial – skin rejuvenation is an acne treatment that uses intense pulsed light to recharge your skin. FotoFacial light causes your body to produce new collagen that your skin uses to heal and smooth itself, eliminating existing acne while also working as an acne scar treatment. The best thing about FotoFacial treatments is that they treat acne just as well as antibiotics, but with few side effects. Lasers have been proven to successfully eliminate acne scars and new research shows that lasers can help prevent new acne as well. As an acne treatment, lasers cauterize the glands that produce oil and induce the formation of oxygen, which kills acne bacteria. Along with the right chemical peel, our patients start seeing results immediately. (see Laser Treatments for more information)
Chemical Peels – This treatment can smooth skin, reduce oil, and lower the number of cystic acne nodules. A glycolic acid or alpha-hydroxy peel, which is a very light chemical peel, is derived from fruits and plants and stimulates new cell growth while allowing dead cells to exfoliate naturally. A Designer Peel is stronger and there will be some down time, however the end result will be a clearer complexion. (see Facials for more information)
Microdermabrasion – The benefit of this treatment is the exfoliation of the skin which unblocks clogged pores and sheds the dead skin cells. Combining with FotoFacials will maximize your treatment benefits. Also very beneficial before extractions. (see Facials for more information)
Extractions – Our Medical Aesthetician will gently extract blackheads, whiteheads and milia. We treat the face, neck, décolleté and back. Please do not try this at home, as it may cause scarring if not done professionally. (see Facials for more information)
Plasma-ablation technology combines bipolar radio energy with natural saline solution. A soothing H2o treatment that uses a plasma field to tighten the skin, stimulate collagen, sterilize the tissue, reduce pore size, while hydrating and rejuvenating the skin. (see Facials for more information)
